Recursion detected in view @view display @display.

Error Type: 
Contributed Module
File name:

The Views module makes it possible to define areas into which you can assign content. For example, you could configure your view to place a Text Area inside the footer of the view.

However, you can also create more complex configurations, perhaps even placing a view inside the footer of a parent view.


You will see this error message when you have tried to configure a view area to use display a nested view, whereby the nested view is actually the same view as the parent view.

This can also operate with deeper degrees of nesting, for example:

View A --> (Footer Area) --> View B --> (Footer Area) View A


The solution is to alter the view area configurations so that no views are nested that appear higher up the nested view chain.
